Daily Bread: Dress Up

Just using this extra time to figure out an outfit or two for this weekend. Also, note to self I must find a white wall to take photos against (and a way to get my shoes into the pictures) ... but tonight I'm just too lazy.

Top: Talula lace tee
Pants: Gap Really Skinny Black Trouser
Shoes: Colour Block Colour Nine West
Watch: Swatch

Recent Purchases

Today I went for a tiny shopping spree at Aritzia, albeit accidentally. I received a call a few days ago that a dress I had ordered had come in and I've been putting off going downtown for almost a week, mostly to control my shopping urges. However, once I arrived it became apparent the wrong dress had been ordered and I was left to exchange it, which I happily did... for several things.

First thing I picked up is the Talula Betsy Blouse in a pink creme colour, aptly called 'darling'. I think I might wear this shirt with leather leggings and maybe a over sized black blazer... or even a tight mini and keep the shirt untucked. Decisions, decisions...

I also picked up a couple cropped tanks that sold out too quickly for me last summer, they'll be perfect to wear with crops and shorts this summer around the pool. I love the rose print, it has been allover recently, especially I've noticed on Asos. They're also from Aritzia, from the Talula line, called the Drew tank in Rosie. I picked up the white tank and the light purple one, but am considering going back for this turquoise version as well.

Stay tuned Monday night to see what I buy when I pop over to the States for a little retail therapy while I'm home on break. My parents will be shopping with me, which will mean they will chime in on the buying and get me a bunch of things ...  or severely limit the things I buy as I 'm supposed to be saving for law school in September. Oh the humanity!

Black Nail Polish

Anyone seem to notice that lately black nail polish is creeping back into high fashion? I'm also seeing variations of the black nail, in charcoal and ash shades, the 'not quite black black nail' polish. Today I'm painting my nails in preparation for the weekend, in Nicole by OPI's Drama in the Dark.
